How often do you grocery shop?

I try to buy for 2 weeks at a time but I usually have to go back to get more milk, eggs and bread :)

  • Once a week, but I end up going for things I forget like two other times.

  • We try for two weeks at a time. But we'll always end up going to walgreens or such for more water, bread, milk and eggs as well.

  • One big trip a week. But I work in a grocery store, so I tend to buy stuff allot more throughout the week. I will pick up small things every other day or so, depending on what i am in the mood for for dinner, or snack. Or whatever the family wants. Very seldom do I leave work empty handed.

  • I am with you. I try and get everything to last for 2 weeks as that is how my husband gets paid. But I do have to end up getting juice, milk, bread, baby food once a week.

  • Once a week. Very rarely have to go back for something I forgot, or didn't know about (like the cupcakes for the class thing!)
